    Tomorrow is Easter, so I ask:

    OUT OF THESE ONES, which is the best Jesus Christ metaphor?


    Which is the coolest? And which is the holiest?

    "A surprising fact that most people are not aware of is that the Dukes of Hazzard was, in fact, a thinly veiled Christ metaphor. The arguments for this are subtle yet compelling. Was not Jesus "just a good ol' boy, never meaning no harm", yet constantly in trouble with the law? Is Boss Hogg not obviously a portrayal of the Beast, his huge gut and corrupt ways speaking of his service to the Evil One? And the moonshining; a subtle reference to the famous miracle of turning water into wine! The General Lee was in fact a series of cars, with a new one replacing the old when it was inevitably trashed during filming; obviously this represents the death and resurrection. Waylon Jenning's voice-overs were of course the voice of God; their omniscient view of the story proves the identity of the speaker. Certainly Daisy Duke could only be the gift of a generous God to all the boys watching. And let's face it, only immaculate conception can explain how there were so many Duke cousins when we never see any parents hanging around to give birth to them."

    Gandalf and Alice of the Resident Evil films both have christ-like metaphors as well.

    That's why he has to say "OUT OF THESE ONES", because he only has rudimentary knowledge of film, is too lazy to put any thought into his threads/polls and he depends on writers from other sites to think for him.

    Of these, Aslan is the best at being a Christ metaphor. Though Klaatu isn't a bad choice either.

    And I really hope the Bo and Luke Duke thing, and the accompanying explanation, was a joke.

    Another Aliasman poll, and poorly made one for good measure.
